After much back and forth, according to 9to5Mac, it is now rumored that Apple's forthcoming A7 processor will have at least some Samsung components. Did you just buy a new iPhone? You did, didn't you? Maybe it was your first iPhone. Well, no matter because the iPhone 5S is coming! And it's going to have a fingerprint scanner. At least, that's the latest rumor circulating as Apple fans eagerly wait the unveiling of the iPhone 5S in September. Although, Apple hasn't officially announced anything, but that hasn't stop online speculation. If you?re noticing a recurring theme at the end of each quarter, you?re not alone. As contenders like Nokia, LG, BlackBerry and HTC battle for scraps in the global mobile handset market, Samsung and Apple continue to dominate by a massive margin. Samsung recently posted record results for the second quarter thanks to the launch of its flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone and Apple shocked Wall Street when it beat estimates due to iPhone sales that came in much higher than expected.
